Curious George Learning + Stride Rite Shoes #Giveaway!

celebrating a new season of Curious George

My kids and some friends enjoyed some fun activities to kick off the new season of Curious George yesterday afternoon! We measured everyone’s height, they colored butterflies to hide and find,

And they made critter catchers that reinforce the difference between mammals, reptiles, birds, and insects:

Then we settled in to catch a sneak preview of the newest season of Curious George, which goes live on PBS stations across the US this coming Monday (December 3, 2012):

Check your local listings for times. You can also download the activity sheets we enjoyed here. This is probably my favorite PBS KIDS show – I love that George has the same innocence and insatiable curiosity today that he had when I was a kid, and there really is a lot to learn through his adventures.


George the monkey loves to play, which is why stride rite – the maker of Made 2 Play shoes – is a perfect sponsor for Curious George. We LOVE stride site shoes – as a baby, now-six-year-old Emma would actually scream if we put her in shoes made by any other brand – so I’m thrilled to offer a $50 Stride Rite gift certificate to a reader of this blog with a US shipping address. All you need to do is fill out the form below:

This giveaway has now ended. Congratulations, Beth B.!

  1. We love Curious George at our house. We watch him everyday! He teaches my kids so much…math, science, thinking skills. Sometimes I have to ask how did you know that? The response is I saw it on George!

  2. My Little Mister LOVES Curious George!
    Just wanted to let you know that I linked you in my newest post. We made a shape nativity based on one I saw on your page!
    Thanks and Be blessed,

  3. We love Curious George in our house. J enjoys that the monkey makes mistakes and gets into trouble but typically all is well, if not better, by the end of the book. I figure that we don’t personally grow if we don’t make mistakes along the way.

  4. Kim @ The Eduators' Spin On It

    We love George at our house too! I love how he teaches science and math and most certainly does spark that natural curiousity in life. Love the giveaway for Stride Rite! Crossing my fingers!

  5. Hope I win, I love Stride Rite shoes. I am already thinking of activities to keep the kids busy during Christmas break, I bought a 300 piece puzzle yesterday at Walmart, so that’s a start.
